      I've lived in Mawson lakes since July 2010, it's a lovely area. Small 3 bed rentals start at around $350 if you need a decent sized 4 bedroom expect to pay $470 per week (or more).

      The kindy there ( which kids can start when 4) is really good but totally over subscribed - I've seen many many people turned away as there are no spaces but there are others nearby. The school is ok. Where were you think g of your 14 year old going? My friends with older kids say the local high schools are no good, unless you can afford Endeavour in ML which is about $6k a year.

      There are some other really good areas in the north you can look at too - Golden Grove etc. If you have any questions on MK please feel free to pm me.

      Best wishes
